Top headphones for office use
I know most of the headphones listed are aimed for advanced users, however I'm just looking for some simple great isolation-quality for office use. Any advice?
Thanks in advance.
I started with AudioTechnica ANC-7b.
The noise cancelling was an eye opener.
But it broke. Cheap plastic structure.
Next was ATH-M50(which I gave away recently)
It isolates well and sounds pretty good.
But the earpads suck and gets stiff and flat pretty soon. Need to replace the pads frequently and becomes expensive over time. 3rd party pads sound horrible.
Since then.... I still bought many headphones like Sennheiser HD598C, Monoprice M1060c, Fostex T-X0, Fostex TH-X00 Ebony...
But the best result in terms of isolation is Shure SE846.
I would rotate among these and many other IEMs.
It really depends on what you are looking for.
Do not go for semi-open or Open back headphones if there are people sitting close to you.
Another thing you need to consider is... in case of office announcements including emergency evacuation broadcasts.... you might not be aware of them and some companies prohibit usage of isolating IEMs or Headphones.
I use a few different HP's at the office depending on mood:
Dragonfly 1.2 , LG V20 or ES100 BT>Sennheiser IE800/Noble K10u
Dragonfly 1.2>MD 02>Audeze Sine
Laptop BT or V20>Sony MDR-1000X
The simplest is probably the 1000X or 1000WH2 now. I love it's great ANC, BT with LDAC/AptX and comparatively good sound quality
I use bose qc25s because in the office, noise cancellation is far more important to me than sound quality.
How loud is the office? And are you looking for active noise-canceling or passive? Are you okay with open-back headphones that leak sound outwards?
I use a ZMF Blackwood (best closed back headphone one can buy in my opinion) in my office with a Chord Hugo 2. Sometimes though I will bring my ZMF Ori.
multi-purpose, office/travel NC I would recommend the Sony 1000X.
most "high end, audiophile gear" is not designed to cancel noise. There's open-back (they leak sound like no other) and closed back (imagine like a standard beats headphone).
Noise canceling is a league of its own. the most notable brand that comes to mind is Bose

What happens when you just missed out on a drop? I wanted to get the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro but the drop ended. Will they ever drop it again? I can't believe i just missed the drop. :(

I (Accidentally) Converted My Friend Into An Audiophile
Last weekend, I was catching up with an old friend of mine. I happened to have my Sennheiser HD 599 lying around in front of the TV because I was lazy and didn't put them away after walking around...
I hope you didn't apologize
Best solution to noisy USB?
I've got a pretty substantial (well, substantial when using my Dynaco Mk III, noticeable when using my Trends PA-10.1D, and all but nonexistent from my Airist Heron 5) buzzing and random noise...
The buzz is dead. Turns out that was a ground loop. Not sure why I didn't think of that prior. The USB noise is...
